They're pussies.


I have to agree. I love the guys that hide up in trees or in cherry pickers, waiting and waiting for a deer to happen to walk by. As if that takes any skill whatsoever.

And honestly, anyone who would kill an animal for sport is a poor excuse for a human being.

Really?? Most hunters eat what they kill. Or they give it to family and friends to eat. Or they donate the meat to food shelters. I find what you stated to be extremely offensive. Lack of class!


Do hunters typically eat bear meat? Just curious.

I'd like a high-end place. Nothing overly fancy, just high quality. JC has more than enough cheap places to grab a bite. I'd like something nicer. BUT, I don't know if JC has the clientele to support a place like this. Even Ox, which was probably the nicest place around didn't make it, and I'm envisioning something more expensive/nicer than Ox.

Not only that, but with all the corruption that goes on surrounding Healy, why would his "great candidate" daughter even want to work for Jersey City? You'd think she would have some intelligence and distance herself from her father.

I'd have to agree. The few times I've seen people not picking up after their dogs it's either an old person or some punk who thinks a pit makes him look tough.

It's not really too hard:

Give every man and woman a $30,000 standard tax deduction per year. For each child $10,000 is removed from that deduction for each parent. With the 4th child $10,000 is ADDED to the adjusted gross income.

Just WATCH how fast family size drops. "Hey honey, do we want a "bundle of love" enough to pay the tax on $20,000 every year." (Ten grand each.) If the answer is yes, you can believe they will make good caring parents who truly want their child.

To make sure the rich are not encouraged to spawn prodigiously because $10,000 is negligible for them, another constraint to add is to increase the top 2 brackets by 1% for each child PER PARENT...no joint accounts.

Just from a practical point of view, schools cost money, sewage removal costs money, and environmental degradation per person is considerable over a lifetime.

Instead traditional religious power in the United States writes the tax code in exactly the opposite way, rewarding those who breed like roaches.


I like this idea.

Keep in mind that the data points are from the census 10 years ago.


True. But I think JC remains one of the most diverse spots in the greater NYC area. I've seen more affluent people moving downtown the past decade or so, but the racial and ethnic diversity is still there. I can still tell which PATH train I've just missed at 23rd Street simply by looking at who's left on the platform.


That's funny. I determine which PATH train should be next the same way.

Sorry, just being truthful. I hate the basketball court because it is noisy. I usually don't give a damn who plays. But in general, the people who play late at night are younger and much much much louder and more annoying than the people who play in the mornings and afternoons. You can call them thugs I guess, but for the most part, they are just teens being teens, i.e., inconsiderate pricks.

If this dog fight took place late at night, no one from the basketball court would have assisted.

What I really don't understand is why he was originally only charged with aggravated assault. Shooting someone in the head is not aggravated assault. Shooting someone in the head means you wanted them to die. Murder. Simple as that. Even if the victim lived......the suspect should be charged with murder. Simple as that.

Also, with regards to blaming teachers? That's crazy talk. The blame is 100% the parents'.

Yea, so then other neighborhoods have to deal with it. Then JC as a whole complains about the crime rate and nothing getting done except for downtown tax perks.

Funny thing you Fulopians don't realize. If he becomes mayor of JC he'll have to fight for all of JC and then the 4 other wards will want the crowds pushed back here.


As it is right now, he is doing something for the neighborhood he represents. As bad as the crime problem is in other sections of JC, I don't see those councilpersons doing a damn thing.

And yeah, of course it would be ideal if all of JC was a better place to live. However, that isn't going to happen. At the very least, I want my neighborhood to be as safe as possible. If that means moving higher class people in, and low class people out, then so be it.

There are more restaurants, bars and new developments appearing on what seems like a monthly basis! I'm sure you have your reasons for giving up but I am pretty excited about the prospects of Jersey City's future!

I believe Mr. Fulop will be the next mayor and we will move forward much quicker.


I think downtown has grown enough. All these buildings and stuff doesn't mean a thing. Your just pushing the "bad crowds" around. Moving them from one area of the city to another. Or if you use your theory of Fulop being mayor, he'll just push everyone out of here and there will be a near crime less city with people from NY. However much crime there is, the people are just as much residents of the city as we are. Getting more people in here is not the solution.

I don't think it's a matter of people being confused, I think it's a matter of people flat out ignoring the flashing yellow. Slowing down is relative, where stopping is absolute.

I was always worried about a car flying down Erie barreling down people eating outside at the embankment restaurant.

JC is a mess when it comes to traffic planning, but a stop sign was needed here. That light should be taken down and I have no idea what purpose it was supposed to serve when it was flashing yellow. The amount of money spent putting it up and the electricity used to keep it flashing seemed like a complete waste.

Not to be insensitive to the folks who live near the HP Basketball courts, but it's important to be mindful that there are homes near Enos Jones. I imagine those folks aren't thrilled with the noise, parking and other issues associated with the little league that plays there either.


But like others have stated, baseball games at Enos Jones don't start up in the middle of the night, like the basketball games do in HP.

Also, the location of the basketball court (or where it used to be) - check out google maps, is much much further away from residential housing vs. the set up in HP.

Really, so that's the problem? How about the fact that I live about a half block away from the courts and directly adjacent to Cordero School? Because I chose to live next to a school I feel I forfeit my right to complain about kids' noise. The courts have been there forever. Did those who moved in across the street from them ask about court noise before they bought or leased? Or did they think that kids would just try to play a little quieter?

The courts are here to stay and if you think they're unpopular, ask around.


Comparing a school to a basketball court is a little silly.

I actually moved into my place right around when the park was closing last year. I had no idea it would be this much of a nuisance. Would it have been a deal breaker? Probably not.

And just because the court has been there forever, doesn't mean it should stay there. It's way too close to people's homes. Simple as that.

How could we get the basketball league to move back to Enos Jones Park, where they played last summer?


Walked past the park last evening with two dog-walking friends. We passed the playground and commented on the wonderful sounds coming from at least 100 happy little kids. We got to the basketball court and the league was in full swing. Kids, 22 of them playing in new uniforms, a very cool working score board, glistening new court surface, and we counted about 50 people viewing the game. One guy said it looks like an urban poster for how things should be.

So you see, we all see things differently. The courts are here and they're here to stay. And if they weren't, I know three guys that would fight like hell to get them back.


The problem is, you don't live next to the bb court. The whistle blowing, the buzzer going off, besides the yelling and screaming, right next to where people are trying to sleep is completely incomprehensible.

I just don't understand why the court at Enos Jones can't be used instead, as it is much further away from where people live.

Hopefully the town will do it soon, as I was getting some dirty looks for having my dog on the walkways on that side of the park.


But the truth is, NONE of the walkways are off-limits to dogs. Only the grass of those sections are.
